Rebellion of Rural Miners
pt
LA PAZ, Bolivia (P)--Armed miners were fighting government
troops yesterday in an effort to recapture the city of Oruro, pro-
claimed the capital of a rebellion but now under army control. But
reports on their success conflicted.
One report from Oruro, 143 miles south of this capital, said that
the army, police and President Victor Paz Estenssoro's militia held
a firm grip on the city, but that the rest of the tin mining area was

the new group just couldn't get
along together.
After consultation with alumni,
the national then piomoted the
actives to alumni status, and re-
quested that they move out by
November 1. The national sup-
plied a list of apartments avail-
able in Ann Arbor but said that
if extensions were needed, they
could be arranged.
Approve Action
Most of the group promoted to
alumni status feel this was essen-
tially the best move that could
have been made, Larson said.
"We feel that Acacia now has
the chance to build the fraternity
into an integral part of the cam-
pus community through the en-
thusiasm exhibited by the new
group," he said.
The new group will soon be
pledged, and probably will not
become actives until next spring.
The house willbe vacant, but
the new members will be able
to hold some functions there, such
as chapter meetings.

New Government
Cont rols Sudan'
Premier Revokes Martial Law,
But Military Still Retains Power
CAIRO (P)-A new civilian government-largely under military
control-took over in Sudan yesterday with a promise of liberty,
freedom of speech, press and public assembly.
The declaration was made in a broadcast by the new Premier,
Elkhatem Khalifa, 40, a former Deputy Undersecretary in the Educa-
tion Ministry, who heads a 15-man cabinet. He is said to have once
favored union with Egypt. Three of his cabinet ministers are
believed to be Communists.
Khalifa announced the abolition of martial law, imposed by a
military government when racial violence and antigovernment demon-
strations swept this big country0-
south of Egypt.

Residence Hall
Overcrowding
Shows Decline
By ROBERT HIPPLER
The number of students living
as extra men in University resi-1
dence hall rooms has been reduced
to 116, according to figures re-
leased yesterday by Director of
Housing Eugene Haun.
Three of the residence halls are
under capacity-with a total of
39 vacancies. Six are over capa-
city-with 116 of their residents
living as extra men in double
rooms which have been converted
into triples.
Earlier in the semester, the resi-
dence halls had been jammed with
about 450 over their normal capa-
city.
Change Dorms
Officials have indicated that
any students living in the dormi-
tories over normal capacity who
wish to move into the dormitories
with vacancies can apply at the
housing office for permission to
move. Students eligible-i.e., of
the correct sex and class for the
dormitories for which they apply
-will be given permission.
The following six dormitories
are over capacity: West Quad-
rangle, 10 over; East Quadrangle,
6; South Quadrangle, 77; Mosher-
Jordan Hall, 1; Stockwell, 16;
Alice Lloyd, 4. The total over
capacity : 116.
These three dormitories are un-
der capacity: Oxford, 9 under;
Fletcher Hall, 3 under; Mary
Markley, 27 under. The total va-
cancies: 39.
Helen Newberry, Betsy Barbour,
Martha Cook, Couzens Hall, Hen-
derson House. and the Lawyers
Club are at about normal capa-
city.
Letup
Housing officials have pointed
to several factors as contributing
to the letup of crowding in the
dormitories, though they have
available no breakdown of figures
for them.
-Menmabove the freshman level
have been able to break their resi-
dence hall contracts-paying a

Goldwater said Johnson "has
proven to be a President isolated
from foreign policy behind a wall
of political ambition and behind a
wall of political henchmen who
care for nothing in the world but
their own gains and power."
Meanwhile, Rep. William Miller,
campaigning in the Southwest. in-
tensified his attack on President'
Johnson. He described Johnson as
"a panic stricken office seeker
willing to stoop to new lows to
dishonor the office he holds by
a shabby attempt to besmirch the
record of a very great President."
Miller issued a statement in
which he discussed the President
in connection with Walter Jenk-
ins, the presidential aide who re-
signed after disclosure he had
been arrested twice on morals
charges.
"President Johnson," Miller
said, "has indulged in the lowest
type of character assassination in
his wholly unfounded claim the
sorry episode of his own assistant,
Walter Jenkins, had a parallel
during the presidency of Dwight
Eisenhower."
He termed Johnson "an interim
President" with a record that in-
cluded "dedication to ADA-radi-
cal-Socialists programs."
Turning to Johnson's running
mate, Miller declared:
"Hubert Humphrey has an ap-
palling affinity for radical polit-
ical causes.' His public record
charts the course for socialism in
America."

A statement of the dissident
United National Front claimed
victory in "the revolution" and
urged all Sudanese to give their

strike and street rioting have
paralyzed the Sudan for more
than a week.
Abboud Power
But a broadcast communique in-
dicated only a slight reduction in
,Abboud's power in the switch from
military to civilian rule. The com-
munique said Abboud would exer-
cise "all the constitutional powers"
of president with the approval of
the cabinet. He wil handle "affairs
related to the armed forces," it
said.

Today is the deadline for all
fraternities and sororities on cam-
pus to resubmit their complete
membership statements in accord-
ance with the Student Govern-
ment Council Membership Com-
mittee's request.
As of last night approximately .
20 houses had not as yet com-
plied, accordinag to William Burns,
'65, the committee's chairman.
"I don't expect many houses to
hand me their statements tomor-
row," Burns said. However, he in-
dicated that if the late affiliates
got their statements into t-he mail
yesterday or today, so that the
committee receives them Monday
morning, the houses involved will
be judged as having met the dead-'
line.
Burns predicted that despite the
committee's allowing the houses
to mail in their tardy statements,
he still expected_ "nine or ten"
affiliates to miss the deadline.
Tardy Statements
Although the majority of those
expected delinquent statements
will probably be due to misunder-
standings by the respective houses,
there most likely will be "several"
affiliates who will be tardy -be-
cause of pressures from their na-
tional chapters, Burns added.
The names of those houses
which fail to resubmit their state-
ments on time will be made pub-
lic Monday. Burns , said that the
committee had not as yet decided
what immediate action it would
take against the tardy houses.-
The ultimate penalty for refus-
ing to submit a satisfactory mem-
bership statement,to SGC is com-
plete withdrawal of recognition
from the guilty house.
Old Regulations
Last fall, under the old SGC
regulations for student organiza-
tions, all fraternities and sorori-
ties were required to turn in mem-
bership statements by a Jan. 15,
1964 deadline.
Five sororities held out submit-
ting their statements until the
day of the deadline, an4 at the
time were required to furnish the
complete membership information
now requested under thq new or-
ganization rules.,
On May 11 the Membership
Committee requested, all the re-
maining houses on campus to fur-
nish new statements by today's
deadline. Under the new organi-
zation rules the houses must sub-
mit the actual wording of their
membership clauses. Formerly, the
definition of "membership state-
ment" was very vague. Last fall
some houses turned in statements
which only said: "We do not
discriminate."

King noted that MSU is cur-
rently deciding on' the best
methods to face higher student
enrollments. He said that the
administration can either increase
the size of the existing colleges or
"introduce new patterns of educa-

It is the function of the com-
mittee charged with examing the
possibilities of the residential col-
lege to see whether some of these
new patterns are "appropriate"
for MSU, he said.
